Book Whore: The Four Agreements

thefouragreements-786824

The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz is seriously my favorite book ever. It actually has been for quite a few years now. I end up going back to it all the time(physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually) – and I truly believe if  I master it, I will experience freedom and joy beyond my wildest dreams. I truly, highly recommend it! It’s straight up a must-have!  Oh and just to get you revved up, here is a quick synopsis of the  agreements via Toltec Spirit:

1. Be Impeccable With Your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

2. Don’t Take Anything Personally: Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

3. Don’t Make Assumptions: Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

4. Always Do Your Best: Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.

(Go get it NOW!!! no – really – NOW!)
